The Economy's Unsung Hero Is Low Interest Rates

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, last week, President Donald Trump again talked positively about negative interest rates. That's not a very good idea considering negative interest rates are a warning signal of deflation, which can be as bad for an economy as runaway inflation.

But Trump was right to herald this era of low ...Read more

Impeachment: The Left's Ultimate Weapon

From the Right / Patrick Buchanan /

In 1868, President Andrew Johnson was impeached for violating the Tenure of Office Act that had been enacted by Congress over his veto in 1867. Defying the law, Johnson fired Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, without getting Senate approval, as the act required him to do.

In his 1956 Pulitzer Prize-winning book, John F. Kennedy made Edmund Ross...Read more

Mexico is paying for Trump's wall

From the Right / Wayne Allyn Root /

President Donald Trump has done it again. He just keeps winning. He just keeps proving the Trump Doctrine works magnificently.

Don't look now, but Trump has even built his wall -- and Mexico is paying for it. More on that later.

First, I want to explain how and why Trump is winning like no president in history. Even UFC legend Conor McGregor ...Read more

Fact-checkers only looking at one side

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

WASHINGTON -- Google "fact-check Senate impeachment" and you can read about all the factual errors made by President Donald Trump's team of lawyers. What about those of the House impeachment managers? Apparently, this week, head prosecutor Adam Schiff and his colleagues cannot tell a lie. Or even a half-truth.

Factcheck.org rattles off the ...Read more

Sanders' record of disrespecting female candidates should not be ignored

SAN DIEGO -- Conservative radio host Ben Shapiro hawks a tumbler that lets fans drink "liberal tears." Liberal presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren offers supporters a coffee cup to hold "billionaire tears."

Where can I buy a mug to catch "white male tears"?

In politics, being a white male is the golden ticket. When a white male runs for ...Read more

The Democratic Party is filled with rampant hypocrisy

From the Right / Adriana Cohen /

As the Senate impeachment trial unfolds, we're witnessing an alarming dual justice system where Democrats accuse the president and the Republican Party of criminal wrongdoing and foul play while giving themselves a pass for the very same acts of which they accuse others.

Take foreign interference in U.S. elections. Democrats have launched an ...Read more

Ten years old: Happy Anniversary to Citizens United

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

Ten years ago, the Supreme Court overturned portions of a federal law that empowered government to dictate how Americans who were not connected to any candidates and political parties could practice their inherent right of free expression. It was one of the greatest free speech decisions in American history.

The case of Citizens United revolved...Read more

Impreachment trial brings sound, fury and predictability

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

If you are a Republican, the first week of impeachment meant the Democrats were unserious clowns, out to launch a coup against the duly elected President of the United States. The President's team was diligent, thoughtful and proficient.

If you are a Democrat, the first week of impeachment meant the President's team was a cast straight from the...Read more

Democrats are digging a deeper hole for themselvels with their disgraceful Hail Mary

From the Right / David Limbaugh /

I don't know about you, but I'm a little tired of Rep. Adam Schiff and the Democratic horde's portraying every charge against President Donald Trump as Trump's effort to interfere with this or that election.

In his opening statement at the Senate impeachment trial, Lead House Impeachment Manager Schiff, puffed up with false indignation, did it ...Read more

Trump is a detailed policy innovator

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Not many people think of President Donald Trump as a detailed policy innovator. His detractors still view him as a buffoon unequipped to run the country. His supporters view him as a guy who has succeeded on great instincts. Not many view the president as a guy who gets under the hood to study the details of policy options. But with historically...Read more

Elite media's avalanche of accolades showers over Schiff

Our media elites arrogantly lecture about our democracy being undermined by robotic propaganda, but do they ever listen to themselves talk about the Democrats? Somehow, they think their robotic propaganda is just the "truth." The press came to witness the Senate impeachment trial, and Rep. Adam Schiff had them at hello.

No member of Congress ...Read more

Hillary puts Bernie into her basket of deplorables

From the Right / Patrick Buchanan /

"Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician." So says Hillary Clinton of her former Senate colleague and 2016 rival for the Democratic nomination, Bernie Sanders.

Her assessment of Sanders' populist-socialist agenda?

"It's all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it." ...Read more

Historians say New York Times gets history wrong

From the Right / Michael Barone /

We live in history-making times. Not so much because of the impeachment trial going on in the Senate, which will make history only if it routinizes impeachments of impolite presidents when their opposition party gets control of the House, but because of what looks like an ongoing battle for control of the central narrative of American history.

What does it take to remove a president?

I don't blame President Donald Trump for his angst and bitterness over his impeachment by the House of Representatives. In his mind, he has done "nothing wrong" and not acted outside the constitutional powers vested in him, and so his impeachment should not have come to pass. He believes that the president can legally extract personal ...Read more

Megxit and Trump separated by generational divide

Far too much ink has been spilled in describing the parallels between a resurgent British nationalism -- a la Brexit -- and the social currents underlying President Donald Trump's MAGA movement. Both have been described as the culmination of a backlash against forces of globalization that created a glamorous, globetrotting elite on one hand and,...Read more

Trump's labor department provides clarity on joint employment

Three years into the Trump administration, we see a clear pattern forming. The Obama administration implemented labor rules that make the labor market less flexible, often at the expense of smaller businesses, but in ways that made unions happy. The Trump administration then takes these rules away. The latest example is the dismantling of the ...Read more

We have miseducated boys and girls alike

From the Right / Laura Hollis /

Last month, The Atlantic magazine ran a powerful article by Peggy Orenstein about young men in America. Titled "The Miseducation of the American Boy," the article is poignant and deeply troubling. And yet I was struck by the fact that Orenstein misses some obvious causes and connections.

She mentions, for example, that the interviews she ...Read more

We must keep our focus optimistic while strengthening governance

This week, the juxtaposition between the Senate impeachment trial against President Donald Trump and his address to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, is surreal. The first is an attempt to remove Trump from the presidency; the second was an incredibly powerful speech that focused on the success of our nation and his presidency. It ...Read more

A minimum wage hike lowers the suicide rate? Not so fast...

From the Right / Larry Elder /

This is a new one. The New York Times headline read: "Minimum Wage Raises Could Lower Suicide Rates, Study Says." But there was a subheadline: "It was the latest study to suggest that effects of wage increases reach beyond economic welfare, but some experts pushed back on the findings."

Let us "push back."

The study was published in January in...Read more

Let's hear It for the Queen

Washington -- Last week was a good week for Queen Elizabeth II. At 93 years of age, she once again asserted her authority and looked, by the way, terrific. Good show, Your Highness.

However, last week was a bad week for Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced Hollywood producer, friend of the Clintons, major Democratic donor and defendant accused of ...Read more
